They've helped me out, quite a bit over the years. I had undiagnosed clinical depression for the first 25 years of my life. I found that - along with other bands/singers - music in general helped me get through the worst of the depression 'patches' as a teenager. I'd blast LP 'till my ears felt like they were about to bleed!! I still blast the same songs, just out of pure love <3
It provides strength for me when I have none left
I only started listening to LP 2 years ago, and I so regret not discovering them sooner. The past 8 years have been hell and I have completely lost myself and can't see any point with life on most days. I too have suffered with depression for a long time. But whatever emotions I have, there is always a LP song that speaks directly to my heart and soul. Their music has helped me hold on these past 2 years, and I feel connected most of all to 'Numb' and also 'Shadow of the Day'. They are the best thing that has happened to me in many years, and I thank them so much for helping me with their music.
How can anyone that has been to hell and back not be thankful for lyrics like these:-
Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last,
I wish it wasn't so...
...All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got
Sure that's why i love them. they changed me, they made my way
